The JW Marriott Clearwater Beach (691 S Gulfview Blvd) is our new favorite staycation destination in all of Tampa Bay. A secluded white sand beach, gorgeous waterfront views, delicious entrees and cocktails on the rooftop, and a 5-star staff await visitors at this new gem. The hotel is also dog-friendly and we adored the furry friends we saw on our visit.
Indulge in total luxury at JW Marriott Clearwater Beach, where every comfort is meticulously catered to. Picture plush bedding, where you’ll rest easy while your private balcony treats you to breathtaking views of Clearwater Beach’s unspoiled shores. Get your camera ready for a golden hour because the aesthetics are unmatched.
When it comes to dining, prepare your palate for a journey. Explore the flavors of the Mediterranean at Latitude 28. This restaurant also offers an exquisite breakfast buffet with staples like waffles and pancakes, fresh fruit and croissants, as well as a full breakfast menu to pair with the sunrise scenery.
The JW Market also offers an astounding array of crave-worthy pastries that are as much a feast for the eyes as they are for your taste buds. I personally indulged in a matcha, fruit, and yogurt bowl to start the day, as well as an iced cold brew.
Guests and visitors can enjoy local delights at ESKaPe Beach Bar & Grille, or ascend to the heights of culinary excellence at the rooftop gem, Deep End. Each venue promises an unforgettable culinary experience.
The Deep End may have the best rooftop views in the region. The cocktails are fantastic, they also serve up mocktails for those who don’t drink but are in the market for a craft beverage. Deep End’s grouper is one of the best I’ve tried in Florida, and the bao tacos are extraordinary. You’ll be forgiven for getting distracted by the sunset views. They’re a marvel.
This rooftop hot spot is right next to the JW Marriott Clearwater Beach’s rooftop pool and hot tub.
The resort offers 162 guestrooms and 33 residences, as well as four F&B outlets, more than 20,000 sq. ft of indoor and outdoor event space.
